Chronicling the development of my 5-gauge 4mm scale model railway with a few off-topic insights thrown in for free

More colouring in

I’ve seen that recently a fair few people have got into these adult colouring books, t’missus being one of them. 

Not my cup of tea, but I do like a good bit of colouring in. As with the pavilion (which will get its flashing at the same time as the the goods shed – I promise!) all exposed cardboard edges are coloured on my goods shed to give a more convincing look. 

You don’t need anything fancy, just a set of felt tip pens from the nearest stationers. 

The results are worth it, as this close up shows the difference between the bit I’ve done where the edge has blended nicely and the bit I’ve missed where the grey is still poking through!

Now in my fourth decade, I am a rolling stock engineer and have worked in many different locations including a 7 year spell in Sydney, Australia, where I arrived with a suitcase and left with a wife and a son. I am now based back in my home county of Yorkshire where I juggle full time work, being a Dad, and trying to fit in railway modelling and visits to volunteer on the Ffestiniog Railway. In addition to my heavily railway themed life, I am interested in rugby, cricket, reading crime novels, falconry, and medieval re-enactments.
